I would put this under unknown/identify, but being that they're CW era, I thought I'd post here. These have both been in my collection for a very long time and considering trading or selling them, as my interests have changed. I bought the tag with the impression it was a Civil War era Federal dog tag. True? Is the Pres Jefferson Davis badge a post war reunion badge? Thanks for any info.

The tag strikes me as a postwar luggage tag similar to the shield shaped tags that superimpose on a patriotic eagle three blank bands for stamping a name and address.

Thanks for the response Steve. Any idea on the Jeff Davis badge?
